Well, we can't quite believe it but another F1 in Schools race season is upon us!
We've had a proud association with this event for a number of years now & we relish the opportunity for a number of reasons - not least because it's a wonderful way of valuing future generations & engaging young people with STEM in an exciting & truly innovative way.
Teams of youngsters get together to design & raise funds to build & race their miniature F1 cars against other teams of students in regional, national & international competitions. To progress in the events they also have to have a business model & a winning presentation of all the work they've put in - as competitions go, it is truly epic in scale!
After a number of approaches from various schools, we have decided to offer our support to the lovely folks at Torque Racing F1 this year & we really look forward to bringing you their news & updates as the race season progresses.
|Torque Racing F1 team, victors at the regional finals last month...|
These dynamic young competitors have already bagged an impressive victory at the regional finals in Birmingham last month & are now striving to repeat their success on a national level. The team, from Sprowston Community High School, will be in action at the National finals on the 12th-13th March & we wish them every success in their mission & hope that SMB Bearings will play a small part in their success.
We'll be supplying them with precision miniature bearings, as well as technical & social media support to help them on their way to victory. Click this Post by Torque Racing F1 to see them live in action - but blink & you miss it - so see an image of their regional finals car below :-)
